Ad Nut's Advertising Hall of Fame

Our pal Ad Nut offers a highly personal list of the best advertising in all of recorded history.

Ad Nut's Advertising Hall of Fame

Editor's note: Our pal Ad Nut (pictured right), who writes new-ad coverage and criticism on this website, has insisted that we publish this 'Hall of Fame' post. It contains, in Ad Nut's words, "the greatest ads ever made in the history of ever". We're confident you'll be able to figure out what factor they all have in common.

Ad Nut hereby honours the following all-time-great commercials, presented in roughly descending order of awesomeness. Ad Nut trusts you will enjoy the powerful performances here and commends the producers of this work for their brilliant casting choices. Ad Nut's Hall of Fame currently has 20 members, but Ad Nut is always on the lookout for more.

Ad Nut is a surprisingly literate woodland creature that for unknown reasons has an unhealthy obsession with advertising. Ad Nut gathers ads from all over Asia and the world for your viewing pleasure, because Ad Nut loves you.
